This term is generally used in rheumatoid arthritis and seronegative spondyloarthritis. Remission means good control of the disease. In person with rheumatoid arthritis, good control of the disease means that there are no joints that are painful, there are no swollen joints and inflammatory markers that are like CRP and ESR are within normal limits. Then, with the treatment, we try to reach the normal limits as much as possible to achieve remission. With the current treatment approach, remission can be achieved in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis.
